Windows 10 Is Downloaded without Asking

Windows 10 Is Downloaded without Asking

It turned out that Windows 10 is automatically downloaded on user machines even when they don’t want to install it. The automatic download takes up from 3.5GB to 6GB of storage space on the machine. Taking into account that some recent Windows computers, including Windows tablets, have only 32GB storage, the download can potentially take up to 20% of the total hard drive space.


The new OS is downloaded in the background without user even knowing about it. This is why people on a slow Internet connection (usually in rural and poorly connected areas) feel that something severely impacts other time-critical activities. Besides, this download could also eat up a significant limit of a metered Internet connection, which can be as little as 40GB per month.

According to user complaints, the Windows 10 downloads occur on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 computers with automatic updates on. While automatic updates are quite useful, as they install bug fixes and security updates, Windows 10 is neither former nor latter – obviously, it is a whole new version of the OS.

Microsoft confirmed that the system “helps computers get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files”. This is true for users who have chosen to receive automatic updates via Windows Update. Fortunately, Windows 10 won’t install without asking, but it will sit on your hard drive taking up space even if you are not going to ever upgrade. Besides, you can also be prompted to install new Windows operating system every time you device is rebooted.

According to statistics, Windows 10 was used by less than 5% of desktop Internet users last month. Windows 7 accounts for almost 50% share. However, it should be noted that the number of people who upgraded to Window 10 is already greater than those who switched to Windows 7 and Windows 8 after the first month of release.

the difference being windows 7/8 users chose to upgrade, not have it done auto matically, luckely i took ownership and deleted the gwx.exe or whatever it was called so i didnt have to have the adware reminding me about upgrading everytime i powered up my machine

No avatarI use my 8.1 with wu turned off. Once in a week i make myself a check for updates manually. If i find a suspicious update, just hide it.

analogkid6103 avatarTo each its still a semi-choice. But it's what must be an informed decision.
If you dont stay informed they make decision.
I found out what it does on my first XP machine. Nothing I wanted to repeat.

No avatar@babykins1982 "It tried to do it to me just as it came out, but thankfully, failed." Make sure you do what mrsalmanaziz said and uninstall the Windows update (KB3035583). Or it might do what I have seen happen to several people and continue to redownload and fail day after day. Look at your update history and you might be surprised how many other times it has downloaded and failed.

bm777 avatarThis is how it starts..your PC is not yours anymore when m$ tell you what you should have so that they can see what you do, what you browse and report back..And you thought cell phones monitoring and data retention were bad news? Opt for another OS or stay with win7 if you must...

knowumsayin avatarDoesnt matter what software or OS is being updated there is always those who will say 'it's crap' so their opinion is of no merit.

Darkan9el avatarHad a few people call me regarding slow internet, HDD/SSD space low warnings and the like.

But if you think that's bad you should see the list of domains you need to block to stop Microsoft spying on you, I mean seriously. The average joe with their life for all to see on FB won't mind but for the smart than the average bear types it's a blatant 2 fingered salute to a person's right to privacy.

Ignorance is bliss as they say.

breathless19 avatarIf it does down load its a nightmare to delete I had to take ownership of the folder with cmd also it seems Microsoft are passing of there spy ware to win 7 users as updates " Fix Win 10 " has a list of the "KB " numbers of the so called updates

Chlodio avatarAm I the only one who was smart about it and just disabled the windows update services? o_O??

alsta avatarI uninstalled KB3035583, restarted, but Win 10 icon in taskbar didn't disappeared. Task manager starts GWX processes. You can see them in Task manager.
I stopped process in order to delete two GWX files (overtaking TrustInstaller permissions). That helped.

chocolatemilk avatarThank You for this information. Sure enough the files are sitting unopened in my windows update. Can anyone share how to uninstall the seven files without opening them. Right now I'm not able to, most likely due to my limited computer skills.

Thank You to all.

paquito208 avatarTake a piece of advice guys and stick with the 7.
Win 10 will have the same fate as vista and win 8......crap.

No avatarnot just downloading it , I think when its done it starts seeding it too . similar to the setting within update which shares updates from your pc to the internet
the one HTPC on my home network of 4 pcs still running windows7 , went from being able to watch YouTube content at 1080p to not being able to watch anything, this is after it said the win10 download was ready to be installed, so I think it wasn't downloading it still at that point.
had my download speed drop to 1/7th of its normal speed and upload speed test was failing to even report a speed test result
